director: Pablo Bellini
starring: Silvia Peyron · Susana Alonso · Reinaldo Alcaraz · Maria Silvia
Varela · Hector Araujo
notorious film is an exercise in stark, nasty inhumane behavior. A young
woman named Alisha joins two damaged brutes, Manija and Hector, in the
robbery of a video store. They're acting on a tip from someone who works
at the shop about a big money transfer arriving late afternoon. These
three invade the store, put a closed sign in the window and hold everyone
captive.. When they kill the bagman, it's evident that chances are slim
for anybody getting out alive. Then Manija - hopped up on a coke - decides
it's time to party [and his idea of fun is "slicing up tits"].
Everything escalates into utter mayhem, a frenzy of rape (straight and
gay), torture, abuse and murder. Eventually, the trio escape when the
police arrive but Maria, one of the surviving abused women, decides to
seek her own vengeance.
Mabel Peyrou was born in August 1961. In the '70s, she became famous for
hanging out at discos and getting her picture in the newspaper constantly.
She turned her infamy to prosperity through a series of cultural and sex
comedies. This film was a major departure for Ms Peyrou but she gained
even more fame because of it. She next produced and starred in the outrageous
melodrama DESPERTAR DE PASIONES [Awakening of Passions] before
a string of television guest roles.
Some sources insist this enamic director is actually the same person who
- a decade later - would become South America's leading man Pablo Bellini,
the handsome star of numerous films and the popular TV series Noche
y Dia (Night and Day). He has distanced himself from the movie [for
obvious reasons] but the evidence seems to point directly at him.
